I’d put Santorum and Gingrich even in this debate, just cause Gingrich is getting boxed in and can’t answer as directly. Paul next, then Romney.

"Free ridership has gone up five times. I have the study to prove it" --Santorum

Mitt: "First, this is nothing to get upset about..."

REALLY?!!!

Takedown, Santorum!

Santorum taking Romneycare to the woodshed!

And how. And contrary to Mitt, it IS WORTH GETTING ANGRY ABOUT. I am forced...forced!...by the state to make a certain purchase every month to subsidize a growing number of people who are on state care.

Go Rick!

This is brutal. Newt is getting torn apart.

Romney is obviously strategically ramping up against Newt. It's almost as though Newt is holding back, as if he knows Romney has something yet unrevealed.

From my view, so far, Romney acts like he hasn't eaten in a week, looking at Newt like he's a thick steak.

Santorum is beating down Romney in the front yard, with all the neighbors watching.

-- Well Santorum just gave up taking the high road. --

Heh. After being lectured by Santoruym, Romney says, "It's not worth getting angry over."

Oh yes it is.

Wolf wants to move on, Santorum won;t let it happen without getting in another word. Romney was just pwned.

“Santorum does a great job on the healthcare question”.
Yes he is and making Mitt uncomfortable to the point that Mitt was getting angry. So Mitt says” it is not worth getting angry over” Huh, you were the one getting angry at Santorum getting on your game.

Rick is spot on...and Mitt says “It’s nothing to get angry about.” What...the whole country is angry about the issue of health care. It is something to resolve and it’s going to take a lot of arguing.

Santorum beats the LS out of Romney and he stands there smiling and making faces, then says, first of all it’s not worth getting angry about. WinTheFuture???
Santorum has the better of this one by far, and moreover, though I’m not happy with RS lately and think he should drop out, he is running away with this debate tonight.
